Wow, some really good, intelligent comments - I dare anyone to find the same feedback on other forums without resorting to "F yo mama" comments.
I haven't actually given my thoughts here. I think WWE should make them employees.
They think of themselves as a corporate and modern wrestling company that works like any respectable TV production house with season premieres and all that. They always say that they are an entertainment company not a wrestling company - so why shy away from making them employees?
Is it the huge insurance cost associated with insuring a high-risk job too high to be financially viable? Who knows.
But as some have said here - they get paid too much anyway - remember they will be taxed more and come home with less.
Oh well, as wrestlers always say, we don't know the BUSINESS so we should shut up. So I will keep my mouth shut.
